Recent Mechanical Engineering Technology students from New England Institute of Technology passed the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) Measurement, Materials, and Safety exam. This is the first exam (out of 52 distinct certifications) that must be taken by all students seeking NIMS credentials.
NIMS was established in 1995 by the metalworking trade association to develop and maintain a globally competitive workforce. The organization sets skills standards for the industry, certifies individual skills against the standards, and accredits training programs that meet NIMS quality requirements. Today, NIMS is the industry standard for training and skill validation for precision manufacturing jobs.
NIMS maintains accredited metalworking training programs and NIMS-registered organizations from coast to coast. NIMS has a stakeholder base of over 6,000 metalworking companies in partnership with the major trade associations in the industry, including the Association for Manufacturing Technology, the National Tooling & Machining Association, the Precision Machine Products Association, the Precision Metalforming Association, and the Tooling and Manufacturing Association.
It also provides exclusive training seminars for instructors and trainers, spotlighting machinist credentialing, and on-the-job training preparation, apprenticeship and workforce development training, and Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) training.
Great job by these students as well as the Mechanical Engineering Technology faculty who prepared them so very well.
